Thanks Dakota.. I've been looking thru them. I just posted a message on my intro thread as a test, because I've tried to comment on some items that I have interest in, but I keep getting a message that says I can't. So I'm not sure how I can reach certain people that I'd like to buy from. I did however, click on the listing creators user name and tried to send a personal message. I didn't get the "restricted" page, but I don't know if they went through either. .
I'm not much of a forum guy, but I do know the basics. I've had trouble since the beginning when I initially signed up for membership. The links in my email were broken or didn't work, and I had to sign up three different times before it finally took. Even then I wasn't able to even post in the new member thread- so I contacted the admin and I got the link thing straightened out and was able to post a hello message. But I got frustrated and gave up on the forum and tried to shop around locally. Nothing good so I'm trying here again.
